Story Time

With Joe Browns every piece tells a story – so it would be a crime not to tell it!

 

We chatted to our designer George to find out her inspiration behind some of this seasons looks!

 

Joyful Jersey Dress

“This print was influenced by a tattoo I had seen.”

 

????? Finished Joyful Jersey Dress

 

 

Carnival Dress

“This print was adapted from the fractal floral print created for the Sunshine Dress to create a unique asymmetric design.”

 

????? Finished Carnival Dress

 

 Traveller’s Jacket

“This jacket was created after seeing a vintage embroidered top in a second hand shop in Brighton. The design was simplified as the intended small mirrors were a production and QC issue.”

 

????? Finished Traveller's Jacket

 

 

 

Free Spirit T-Shirt

“This graphic was inspired by the blown ink artworks everyone used to do as children. Giving the graphic a sense of both chaos and fun.”

 

?????  Finished Free Spirit T-shifrt

 

 

Repeat Adventure T-Shirt
“This was inspired by Andy Warhol style pop art. Simple, clean and vibrant.”

Plan the perfect picnic

So it’s Sunday, you’re still feeling a bit groggy from last night, the receipts in your bag tell you you’re also broke and all everyone you know is thinking about is how much they don’t want Monday to come.

 

So what do you do – you have a picnic of course!

 

 

picnic

 

Step 1
Pick a place
If the sun is shining – awesome. If it’s not, just pick somewhere close to someone’s house so you can retreat there if needs be. If you’re sitting cross legged on the floor sharing nibbles, it still counts as a picnic.

 

Step 2
Invite everyone you know in the proximity – there’s no limit to how many people can fit in a park and let’s face it you can’t have that many friends.

 

Step 3
All make 1 or 2 things you can share. This recipe’s great and really quick!

 

Beetroot salad:
Peel raw beetroots and grate them. Add pistachios or hazelnuts; dress with orange zest and juice, and olive oil. Add some goats’ cheese and chopped parsley.

 

Step 4
Beats. Never forget the beats. Some of our top tune recommendations are: Paul Weller-Study In Blue, Black Market Karma- All These Things and Stevie Wonder – Remember Me.

 

Step 5
Have some fun!
Dust off the kids’ old Frisbee and bat and ball sets and be a big kid yourself for the day.

 

 

And to have all your fun in, we’ve put together the perfect summer picnic outfit for you!

An Afternoon in Sunny Saltaire

We teamed up with local blogger Carl, who writes A Bloke’s Eye View for a laid back afternoon in the cool little Victorian village of Saltaire, just outside Bradford.

 

IMG_4461

 

We met up at The Boat House Inn and had a lemonade – honestly it was just a lemonade!

 

Carl’s opted for the Fun In The Sun T-Shirt (£19.95).

 

IMG_4537

Summer Chill Jacket (£54.95).

 

Living in Bradford, with his wife and little boy, Carl knew Saltaire pretty well so gave us a bit of a tour of the place before dragging us kicking and screaming into another cool pub – The Hop.

 

 IMG_4565

Straight Joe Vintage Jeans £42.95 + Brilliant Boat Shoes (£44.95).

 

 

IMG_4698

 

Carl told us he wanted to smarten up his look a bit, so we got him to try on one of our blazer and waistcoat combos – Stripe Me Up Blazer (£89.95), Deadly Dapper waistcoat (£42.95) and Joe’s Classic Shirt (£29.95).

 

He said: “A couple of off staff from the pub told me I looked very dapper, which is a word that has never been associated with me before…which was very nice!”

The sun was then beaming through the windows of the pub, beckoning us to get outside, so we whacked on a pair of shorts and sunnies and did just that!

 

IMG_4771

 

IMG_4779

 

Surf Board Sally Tee-Shirt (£16.95), Check Me Out Shorts (£39.95), Must Have Pumps (£22.95) and Laid Back Messenger Bag (£39.95).

 

Let us know what you think of Carl’s new look!

Afternoon Tea

Blogger Sarah, or Stevo as she’s known among friends, writes a great blog on fashion, lifestyle and beauty.

Bloggers Love… Joe Browns

 

We sent two of our team, Keely and Emily, down to the big smoke to meet some of the UK’s best (and loveliest) bloggers and say hello while showing them some of our stuff!

 

The event, hosted by Bloggers Love, was part of Bloggers Fashion Week and saw over 200 bloggers pile into a funky Shoreditch studio to check out the latest products in fashion, beauty, accessories and more.

As well as having a glass of fizz and chatting about the themes and influences behind the collection with the bloggers (It’s a hard life for some) key items were showcased on the catwalk.

 

Misha2 Skin Face Beauty

 

Emily said: “It was such a great night! We met hundreds of bloggers, some who knew Joe Browns well and others who didn’t so much, but they all loved our summer pieces and wanted to know more about us. A couple of pieces that especially got noticed were the Fabulous Floral Jacket and Funky Festival Palazzo Trousers.”

Hello Sunshine!

In the words of Lion King’s Rafiki – ‘It is time!’ to shove your bulky winter coat to the back of the wardrobe. At last!

 

To give you a hand in sorting out your new summer wardrobe – and because it’s a lot of fun – we put on our seasonal catwalk using a load of the guys and gals in the office to showcase our latest summery looks (see if you can spot the blonde fitty at the end)…
